Adding photos from iPad. I'm about to lose my shit.

What the actual fuck am I doing wrong?

I can load a picture but it's always always sideways no matter what I do.

Then, as if that want annoying enough, when I load a second one the first one changes to the new one I've just loaded. So I end up with two identical photos even though I loaded two different ones.

It doesn't matter how many I load they all change when I load a new one.

I'm seriously about to blow a gasket here. What the jeff is happening?

where are you trying to post pics to?
your profile?
or a talk topic?

Just on my profile.

I just tried putting a new picture on my profile and it came up as the first picture, but also replaced the 8th and the last pictures as well! I've now deleted the top one but if you look at my profile you can see that the pictures captioned 'sorry Daddy I can't hear a word' and 'Duffy' are now both a screenshot of the Mumsnet back button problem... I'm now wondering if I try to replace the proper pictures, will they bump something else out of place?

The orientation problem may be because some computers have a problem reading the orientation info on iOS (iPad/iPhone pictures). I have had the problem in the past, and the solution seemed to be to make sure that when you take photos or videos on the iPad the Home button is always at the bottom in portrait orientation and on the right for landscape. This may not solve the problem for all systems you upload the picture too, and in any case, in view of the other problem, I would suggest that the picture uploader has issues that need looking at!

Phew, thank the Lord it's not just me!

With the orientation thing (that's the which way up it goes bit isn't it?) I tried uploading a saved photo, I tried making the photo sideways before loading it (thinking if it rotated one that was already sideways it might end up the right way when the system flipped it iyswim) and I tried taking a new one. Each time the sodding thing came out sideways confused

Which way did you have the iPad when you took the picture? As I said, I'm not sure whether that solves it in all cases, I think it depends on how the computer that's recieving the pictures reads it.

I did try taking pictures with my iPhone in all four positions and was going to upload them to see what (if any) difference it made, but I gave up that idea once I saw that my current pictures were disappearing - I don't want to lose any more!

Oh, and Olivia, I think you should tell MNHQ that if you're expected to answer Site Stuff questions you need to be given a iPad so you can investigate the problems.... grin

Sorry about this - still looking into this for you

RandallPinkFloyd Sun 08-Sep-13 17:11:01

I definitely had it the right way up when I took the photos, honest!

I second the staff-iPad motion grin

It's still happening!!!

Well, the sideways thing is fixed and I can load one new picture but if I load a second one it changes them both to the second one confused
